It should be noted the Applicant’s pitch to the Fauquier County Planning Commission, both in their written application on file and in their opening presentation at the hearing, focused almost entirely on their Islamic religion, not the “Land Use” issues of their application. Yet, at the hearing, the Fauquier County Planning Commission Chair explicitly stated this application was not about religion or race, but about land use issues; and any comments about religion “…will not be tolerated.”
With these words, the citizens of Fauquier County present were silenced under threat of dismissal from the podium- and denied their First Amendment rights under the U.S. Constitution- to express their very real and genuine concerns of the specific beliefs of the religion being advocated by the Applicants being relevant factors as to the suitability of this Applicant, a global Islamic organization, to establish a permanent, 515-acre compound in Fauquier County with all implications such a huge foreign-entity influx of outsiders to our local community would forever impact our traditional American quality of life. That the Applicant utilized nearly all their public hearing time to advocate and indoctrinate their religion and beliefs while the local government official strongly forbade and denied Fauquier citizens to engage in an equal-opportunity, factual discussion of that religion- was a truly despicable and unlawful silencing of the free speech rights of those citizens present who wished to speak to those facts as they directly related to this specific application. An Applicant who would misrepresent their religious text to Fauquier citizens cannot be fully trusted to gain approval for their large commercial development project, much less abide by laws and conditions pertaining to such an approval. Again, the Applicant at the hearing threw down their gauntlet in the faces of the Fauquier citizens by discussing and advocating for their Islamic religion- a religion whose underlying goal is to dominate every culture and society they infiltrate- a widely documented fact. The presiding government official then denied Fauquier citizens their constitutional right of free speech to engage in the application relevant details of that religion. This act was an abomination of the public hearing process and a violation of the First Amendment rights of Fauquier citizens. It also demonstrated the Applicant’s use of Quran teaching of “Taqiyya,” that lying to infidels for expediency to advance and protect Islam is both a virtue and a duty. In this religion, it is also documented fact they are on record Jihadism by the pen is on equal footing with Jihadism by the sword. Islam is Islam regardless of sect, and it has been demonstrated wholly incompatible with our Western Civilization and our American culture and way of life: https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2019/01/islam_is_islam_irrespective_of_sect.html
Is this kind of major project and permanent importation of a foreign culture’s belief system to dominate our local society into submission to non-Constitutional Sharia Law improving our local Fauquier County community traditional American quality of life? Very clearly, many relevant Land Use and compelling religious issues reside with this Applicant and this application. Despite the façade of peace, love, brotherhood and justice, this Applicant’s global organization and its Fauquier hearing spokesman cannot properly cover up what it truly is: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/09/megyn-kelly-exposes-ahmadi-muslim-spokesman-harris-zafars-sly-opposition-to-free-speech
Constitutional Law specialist and litigator, Karen Lugo, notes in her book, MOSQUES IN AMERICA: A Guide to Accountable Permit Hearings and Continuing Citizen Oversight (p.173), “An important, but rarely utilized, American free speech legal doctrine is the First Amendment-based prohibition against prior restraint… This means that government may not, discretionarily, create ad-hoc rules to silence points of view that they do not want to hear. Legally speaking, government may not restrict speech based upon content or viewpoint.” George Washington reminds us, “If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led like sheep to the slaughter.”
Most importantly, I believe anyone who, after the disastrous, very damaging and dramatic rise of Islam inside our nation over the past 70 years which have corroded our domestic peace and American way of life to include countless hostile attacks on innocent Americans; or some other equally revealing incident- specifically the September 11, 2001 terror attacks on our American soil- continues to speak in support of Islam or in terms of sympathy for Islamicists, is either very misinformed or very dangerous.
